Have you ever heard about "exoplanets"? They are planets outside the solar system and there are about 1800 of them! Summer Reading Club participants and their families are invited to a special presentation about our solar system at the Allen Planetarium at South Vigo High School by the planetarium director, Holly Hudson.
